“It is under investigation,” Officer Paul Metcalf of the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department told RadarOnline.

“I don’t know the circumstances as to why though.”

According to D.C. Police, escorts are typically reserved for the president, foreign dignitaries, diplomats and top federal officials – not celebrities.

"Yeah, we had a police escort. We ran more red lights than Brooke Mueller heading to a pawn shop,” Sheen told reporters once he arrived at the venue.

Council member Phil Mendleson heads up the committee that oversees public safety in D.C., but calls for a comment have not yet been returned.
